Enterprise-Class Data Security, Mobile Access and Collaboration for SMBs
ATLANTA, July 14, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Cbeyond Inc (Nasdaq:CBEY), the Technology Ally(TM) for small and mid-sized businesses (SMBs), announced today the availability of TotalCloud(R) File Storage, a secure and compliant cloud file storage, sharing and backup service for business media and data, which provides a simple and secure collaboration platform for businesses of all sizes.
Cbeyond will provide demos of TotalCloud File Storage during the Microsoft Worldwide Partner Conference 2014 at Booth 1807 in the Walter E. Washington Convention Center, Washington D.C., Sunday, July 13 – Wednesday, July 16, 2014.
The latest offering in Cbeyond’s TotalCloud suite of services, TotalCloud File Storage (TCFS) provides a simple, intuitive and affordable solution to store, share and access confidential files with top-level security. Its unified, cloud-based storage for business data gives SMB employees and communities advantages previously only available to enterprises: real-time collaboration, file synchronization and backup in an easy and secure manner, any time and from any device.
With TCFS files are sent and received via password-protected email links, eliminating the need to send bulky email attachments that might get tagged as spam or clog networks and inboxes. This functionality is bound to appeal to SMBs in particular given that 83 percent of SMB leaders voted security, productivity and collaboration software as important to their business, according to the Summer 2013 Cbeyond Business Leader Snapshot(TM) survey.
“TotalCloud File Storage is designed to address the needs of today’s dynamic businesses as it lets teams work more collaboratively, remotely and securely,” said Drew Kimball, director of product management, Cloud Services, Cbeyond. “With easy scalability, customization tools and common-sense pricing, it can be invaluable for SMBs of any size that need reliable, anytime, anywhere access to business data and files.”
TotalCloud File Storage is available as two options – Essentials or Enterprise, depending on the size and needs of the business. These options include many easy-to-use features like Secure File Sharing, Bulk File Upload, File Synchronization, Email Integration, and Multi-Platform Support (including PC, Mac, Android and iOS). In addition, TotalCloud File Storage provides the following unique advantages to SMBs when compared to consumer-grade, commodity file storage services:
“The evolving Cloud market for SMBs requires a new partnering approach which represents exciting opportunities for both Cbeyond and Microsoft, as we explore a new model that targets and recruits more Microsoft partners more effectively,” said Chris Gatch, CTO of Cbeyond. “The Microsoft Worldwide Partner Conference is also a great venue for partners seeking to get a first look at new, highly scalable cloud-based services such as Cbeyond’s TotalCloud File Storage.”
